Hi, I'm Kevin.
I am a multi-disciplined designer that has been working in the field for nearly 20 years. I have spent much of that time working with web technology from the early days of building websites with slice and dice tools, to working on large scale web applications with a team of developers. Between those points I have experienced a wide range of opportunities: ad creation in print and web, print media for any number of needs, video production and editing, branding and identity, project management, CMS integration, custom solutions design and development, website and web application management, design system creation, re-branding, re-design, and re-factoring galore.
For the past few years I have been getting more and more involved with front-end development as an offshoot of my work in UI and UX design. I kind of figured that if I was going to be designing these things, I should know how to build them too. This site is also a byproduct of wanting to be a better developer. My goal is to use this as a platform for exploring tools and techniques while keeping track of some of the other things that interest me.
I am still interested in all of those things above, however I have also started to branch out into more of the maker space as well. I have a strong interest in woodworking, metal working, and really just building things. I find it very satisfying to be able to build something and then stand back and enjoy it.
Right now my aspirations on this front outstretch my tools, but no matter. I am exploring and having some much needed fun.
That is about it for now. At least in terms of things that I am going to get into on this page. 😉
